Traveling for Honeymoon

I'm traveling on Friday for my honeymoon. Last night, out of the clear blue, my mother texted me and told me that I can't go through the machines at the airport. Immediately started Googling it and TSA says it's fine. What's your opinion on this? Should I ask for the pat down or just say nothing and go through the scan? HELP, please! (First baby ever and so I'm totally clueless, hehe!)
*EDIT: I'm 6 weeks and we're going to Paris
France and Mallorca Spain.
